This webinar on 11 April follows the European Commission’s proposal for the European Critical Raw Materials Regulation on 16 March 2023. It aims to explore some of the opportunities and challenges linked to the EU’s new strategy for securing the supply of CRMs, both inside and outside the EU.
The regulation will have implications for the EU’s own internal environmental and circular economy-related objectives, as well as external impacts through shifts in demand for CRMs and trade flows. This event will identify focus areas for policymakers and the international community to ensure that the objectives of the regulation can be achieved by accelerating the shift to a global circular economy without hindering global sustainable development goals.

In September 2019, nine Resourceful Cities embarked on their journey to develop next-generation urban resource centres as a way to accelerate the transition to a circular economy.
The nine cities together with their local stakeholders were all able to deliver a high-quality Integrated Action Plan. Every one of those action plans is not just an expression of their resilience in times of crisis: it is also a manifestation of their individual response to their local context and needs.
This publication summarises their collective journey as a network and tells the story of each of the nine partner cities from their own perspective. Their journey shows that cities are big enough to make a difference and small enough to make it happen.
